Trust Your Child’s Case To Pre-Eminent Juvenile Law Attorney William Grant
When juveniles end up in the justice system, they are at risk of starting down the wrong road. Juveniles who begin a pattern of criminal behavior while young are more likely to end up facing incarceration as adults. Fortunately, Missouri’s juvenile justice system is designed to prevent that from happening.
If your child is facing juvenile delinquency charges, this is a critical juncture in his or her life. It can be a positive turning point if handled correctly.
